    There are certain apps that will not let your phone sleep as I noticed yesterday (TRAPSTER) and so I ended up unistaling it because it kept my home screen up and it never went to black. I didn't want my battery to run down so I got rid of it but as I sit here thinking about it, couldn't I have gone into my Application settings and turned that app off until I wanted to use it again?

    Yes. Or use an app like Advanced Task Killer Free. You can kill any app instantly, including Task Killer itself. I don't let that app start on boot up, or run all the time. But I do use it a couple times a day to kill apps I don't want running any longer.

    There are many that will tell you that you don't need an app killer. I am not arguing that point. I'm just recommending an app that would solve this particular issue. :)

    Hi Chuck, this is not true. If you hit the "Home" button you'll see a message that says "Trapster is active". You can pull down the top bar to access it and exit. If you hit the "Back" button you will get a dialog that says "Do you want to leave Trapster running in the background?". If you choose No, or quit Trapster, it will not keep running / drain your battery. You should always exit Trapster when you are not driving - and get a car charger and car mount too.
